Panasonic comes out with Solar-Powered Streetlights that shine for 10 Years
How long do streetlights last do you know? Not that any of us have bothered to find out but they supposedly need to last for a lot of time and withstand a lot of rough weather. But Panasonic Electric Works Co. in collaboration with Sanyo Electric Co. has come up with a new alternative technique that brings up the lamp life by up to 40%! These streetlights will be made with solar cells, lithium ion batteries and LED lighting, giving the lamps a 10 year lifespan with very little maintenance hassles. The pricing for the 24-watt light is set at around about 3 million yen ($36,940) and a 10-watt version will cost you about 2 million yen ($24,625).
